SUMMARY- There are some spectacular examples of quilting, and patterns from one of them that is a whole cloth quilt by Debra Wagner. I got very interested in machine quilting after discovering my mom left about a 100 unquilted tops. There are a lot of gorgeous eye candy in this series of books - well worth picking up if only for inspiration - but a lot of the patterns for these quilts are also given.
